This first volume (of a 3-part series) offers resources for preachers and teachers who use the Year A cycle of the Revised Common Lectionary. The book includes comments on every scripture for every Sunday in Year A; in addition, there are more than 60 sermons with stories and illustrations for a treasure trove of preaching ideas. With more than 50 years of combined preaching experience between them, John and Delmer offer insights that help the texts and possibilities for preaching come alive in the everyday ministry of working pastors. Based on sound scholarship and borne out of hundreds of encounters with listeners in the local parish, the offerings for each Sunday not only entertain and inform, they "just make sense" in the lives of real people. Delmer Chilton holds degrees from the University of North Carolina, Duke Divinity School, and the Graduate Theological Foundation. He is a Lutheran pastor serving as Priest-in-Charge of an Episcopal parish. John Fairless holds degrees from the University of Tennessee, Vanderbilt Divinity School, and Princeton Theological Seminary. He is a life-long Baptist and serves as Senior Minister and primary preacher for his congregation. Writing in recommendation of the book, Pastor H. Julian Gordy, Bishop of the Southeastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America said, "The short commentaries on each text are unfailingly insightful and fresh. The sermons -- in the best tradition of narrative preaching -- are always inspiring examples of the marriage of text and context."
